NEMA Efforts
NEMA publishes a summary of the areas of impact for the
Energy legislation on the Electrical industries.
• http://www.nema.org/gov/energy/EnergyLegislation.cfm
• 2005 (Page 4 is motors)
• 2007 bills (See appendix II)
Original EPAct 10 CFR Part 431

Energy Legislation Summary
Original Legislation – EPAct 1992
The 2005 bill made the purchase of NEMA Premium
motors mandatory for government buildings in an attempt
to show leadership in saving energy.
The 2007 bill raised the level of all product covered in the
original bill to the NEMA Premium levels with the
exception of Fire Pump motors (Due to low run hours)
Effective December 19, 2010
The 2007 bill also tried to plug the holes of the original bill
by expanding coverage
All ratings that are covered by the expanded coverage will
only be require to meet NEMA Table 12-11 which is the
Energy Efficient (Old EPAct) levels.

2007 EISA Enhancements
General purpose electric motor (subtype I) – any electric
motor incorporating the design elements of a general
• Previously covered products (Including XP) increase
to NEMA Premium® (except fire pump motors)
• Electric motor (subtype II) increase to NEMA MG1 Table
12-11 that are configured as:
U-Frame motor
• Design C motor
• Close-coupled pump motor
• Footless motor
• Vertical solid shaft normal
thrust motor (tested in a
horizontal configuration

8-pole motor (900 rpm)
• Polyphase motor with voltage
no more than 600 volts (other
than 230 or 460 volts which
moved to NEMA Premium)
• LV Design B (Not A or C)
Motors to 201HP - 500HP
Is My Motor Covered???
Brake Motors - Maybe
Appendix A to Subpart B of Part 431—Policy Statement for Electric
Motors Covered Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act
provides the following guidance. According to the examples of many
common features or motor modifications that illustrate how the EPCA
definitions and DOE guidelines would be applied to motor categories:
General Purpose; Definite Purpose; and Special Purpose, a motor
with an integral brake design that is factory built within
the motor is considered a special purpose motor and
therefore not covered. (Otherwise, a motor with a brake
attached (removable) is still considered a general
purpose motor and therefore covered.)
Multi-Voltage like 208-230/460 - Yes
• Must meet table 12-11(EPAct) at 208V and Table 12-12
(NEMA Premium) at 230 and 460V. Example from 10 CFR
Part 431 “For example, a motor that is rated at 220 volts should
operate successfully on 230 volts, since 220 + .10(220) = 242 volts.
A 208 volt motor, however, would not be expected to operate
successfully on 230 volts, since 208 + .10(208) = 228.8 volts.”

Is My Motor Covered???
Special Customer defined Flange: - No
What about Verticals?? - Some
Hollow Shaft – Not covered only Solid Shaft added by EISA
P-Base solid shaft (HP, LP..)– Only covered if “Normal
Special Shaft motors (Typically TZ, TCZ, TDZ,TY,
LPZ...) - No
While NEMA C & D as well as IEC equivalents are covered,
Special Customer flanges are not covered and the motors
are not required to meet EPAct (or EISA)
These motors are not considered “General Purpose and are
not covered.
201HP-500HP Design A or Medium Voltage – No
MV not covered in General Purpose definition.
Only NEMA Design B is covered on 201-500HP
Motors | Automation | Energy | Coatings
Is My Motor Covered???
“Inverter Duty” – Motors listed for VFD capability
• Yes if – the motor is also suitable for general
purpose use on 60Hz sine wave power
Typical example is a Des A or B motor that can
start across the line, but has a MG1 Part 31
VFD capable insulation and is labeled “Inverter
• No if – the motor has a special winding
optimized for VFD service and can not be used
across the line. i.e. Vector Duty motors that may
have excessive staring current or insufficient
starting torque when started across the line

What about Motors for Export
WEG can manufacture and import motors that do
not comply with the regulation, if they are
specifically marked as:
“Export only, Not for installation in the US”
Orders must specifically reference this requirement,
and these will be entered on the plants requiring this
note on the motor and Packaging
No special tracking of the motors is required to
prove they were exported, but penalties will be
severe if these motors are found installed in the US
Motors | Automation | Energy | Coatings
What is the penalty based on?
• Improper labeling i.e. Lack of CC# or Efficiency
• Not meeting efficiency level
• Publishing catalog without required info (CC#)
• Failure to provide samples for Gov’t test-No Charge
• Failure to allow access to Documents
Penalty $110/violation/day
• Penalty is at discretion of DOE and may be reduced
or waived if DOE chooses based on evaluation.

What next
Working with advocacy groups such as ACEEE (American Council for
and Energy Efficient Economy) and ASE (Alliance to Save Energy) to
promote Energy Efficiency incentives and programs.
Two Energy Bills currently in Congress contain incentive programs WEG
and NEMA have promoted to encourage the early switch to NEMA
Premium and the replacement rather than repair of older inefficient
motors. -These bills do not look like they will pass
New Efficient technology bill in congress $125/HP PM, ECM..
DOE reevaluating Efficiency levels for further increase
Energy advocates pushing to move exceptions to NEMA Premium
What can we do?
You and customers can contact representatives to support the Replace
Vs Repair legislation if it still exists.
Inventory installed base at customers facilities to be ready to take
advantage of incentives or to just make good repair Vs replace decisions
in the future.

Small AC Motor Efficiency Regulation
On Feb 28, 2010 the DOE has also mandated efficiencies of General
Purpose Small motors.
This regulation will go into effect 2015
Covered motors are defined as:
1/4 to 3HP
• 3-phase, and single phase CSCR and CSIR
• 2 Digit Frames 42, 48, 56 and IEC equivalent
Issues NEMA sees• Size change impact OEM’s
• Size change impact MRO replacements
• Setting Efficiency level where no Rating /Frame standard exists
• Questionable data in baseline study
• Overestimate of operating hours for justification

Is WEG Ready?
As one of the largest industrial motor manufacturers in the
world, WEG is ready and pushing for early adoption of
NEMA Premium or greater motors by customers to save
energy –
• WEG has a complete line of NEMA Premium products
today and has the capacity to meet the 2010
requirements today.
• WEG is currently introducing a new low voltage motor
platform (W22) that was developed to optimize the
designs around the NEMA Premium motors, and offer
even higher efficiencies in the future.
• WEG’s North American manufacturing facilities are
currently being optimized for the production of NEMA
Premium motors.
• WEG EISA Cert # is the same as EPAct CC# 029A
